Gareth Ochse



Gareth Ochse is an entrepreneur, former venture capitalist (VC), and finance deal-maker. The combination of having been on both sides of the table (and negotiation between) gives him great insight into the challenges on all sides. As an entrepreneur, Gareth started at age 11 and has been self-employed for all but 2 years of his career, mostly in the software/online/mobile space. His start-ups have been ranked in the top 20 'innovative ideas' in Europe and Africa. As a VC, Gareth spent 2 years with top international strategy consultancy Bain & Co, and was a founding member of Bainlab - Bain's early stage VC arm based in London. As a deal-maker, Gareth has advised on deals ranging from $50K 'friends and family' rounds to $20M MBOs, and even multi-$Bn export credit arrangements at ministerial level. Gareth is passionate about finance as a power-tool for entrepreneurs and writes a weekly column on 'Finance 4 Entrepreneurs' for Finweek magazine. His newest venture, ValuationUP.com offers full business performance benchmarking, credit-scoring and valuations for privately-held firms.
